    Well, here in Missouri we got 10-12 inches of snow, and today is -10 with a wind chill of -25!!! I put Vaseline on my rooster's comb yesterday before the full white out came. They're okay out there, and the waterer is heated, so I think they'll be fine. I hope....

    How cold is it in your area? How are you girls (and boys) doing?

    My weather in Iowa is -15 feels like -41. BRR! No snow though. :( The chickens are definitely puffy but they ran right to the scratch that I threw down, so I know they are fine. :) The heated bowls for all the animals are holding up great, which I am thankful for.
